Welcome to Walnut Creek
Walnut Creek is considered to be the Big City Buzz with majestic Mountain Views! One of Walnut Creek’s strength as a community lies in its beautiful, unique neighborhoods.
Mt. Diablo, Glam restaurants, power shopping, edgy art, cool theater symphonic music – all in a small town jewel setting ringed by mountain views that deliver on their promise of outdoor recreational opportunities.
Downtown Walnut Creek is a shopper’s dream! Broadway Plaza, a longtime favorite place to shop, is an open-air shopping center with more than 80 specialty shops, services, and restaurants, and is anchored by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s. The city’s much-admired, eclectic restaurant scene has landed it on “Livability’s 10 Best Foodie Cities” list, which noted a dining community that favors locally owned establishments over chains. Whether looking for an outdoor patio cafe, quaint coffee shop, ice cream parlor or upscale dining establishment, Walnut Creek has it all!
Looking for art and culture? No need to go into SF… Walnut Creek’s very own Lesher Center offers theatre, ballet, symphony orchestra, and opera along with a variety of galleries & art exhibits. Among local major employers are highly visible healthcare systems such as Kaiser Foundation, John Muir/Mt. Diablo Health Systems and Permanente Medical Group. Recreational facilities are equally impressive, from championship golf courses to the 101-acre Heather Farm Parks complex.
